Taking only memories, leaving only footprints

Farewell to the Caribbean

Sea Dragon has been sailing the waters of the Atlantic for more than 5 years, and so it’s with mixed feelings that we are enjoying our last few nights in Grenada before departing for Panama.

We just finished up a great trip through the Grenadines, soaking up all the best of the southern Caribbean – beautiful beaches, swims with sea turtles,
exploring coral reefs, and fun trade wind reaching.

We paid a final visit to Jenny’s in Union Island to get one last bottle of her famous hot sauce, ate barbecue under the stars in Chatham Bay, and even did a bit of morning beach yoga on Sandy Island off Carriacou.

There are a lot of things we’ll miss about the Caribbean – the food, the sun, the sailing, the unique character of the islands, and a few things we won’t – the increasingly crowded anchorages, the RIBs weaving at high speed past swimmers, and the glaring lights of mega yachts at night.

On Saturday we’re setting our course for Panama – and the weather gods are forecasted to give us a fast downwind run out west. We’re ready to head across the Caribbean Sea!
